Coventry City are pleased to announce that we have agreed to sign Aaron Evans-Harriott from Cheltenham Town.
The 17-year-old joins the Sky Blues after we agreed a compensation package with Cheltenham.
The highly-rated attacking midfielder has signed a 2 and a half year contract with the Club and will initially be based with the Sky Blues Under 23s as he continues his footballing development with the Sky Blues.
Evans-Harriott became Cheltenham Town's youngest ever Football League player when he appeared as a substitute in a Leasing.com Trophy match in September 2019, aged just 17 years and 22 days, and has impressed in his progress through the Academy ranks and in the Under 18s at Cheltenham.
Manager Mark Robins said:
“We are delighted to have signed Aaron on a long-term deal with the Club.
“He is a great young prospect, with lots of attributes and potential. He has impressed within our Recruitment Department, and we look forward to working with him going forward to help fulfil that potential.”
Evans-Harriott joins the Sky Blues on a professional contract to 30th June 2022.
